Got off of the plane in SLC from San Diego and came home. Props to Delta Airlines who treat their Silver Medallion Frequent Fliers like gold — I got bumped to 1st Class on both the way out and back because I am a Silver Medallion Member. I was home about 10 minutes and had to go pick up my bike from Shay as he grabbed it at the shop for me today (thanks pal). I got it home and Karen asked me, “How’s the girlfriend?” She and I kid a lot about the fact that I spend so much time with my bike. I told her, “Quiet and fast, just how I like ’em.” Man I love my wife who is excited and supportive of my tri habit.

After that, I went out for my run. I should have run this morning in San Diego, but I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed to do it this morning. It was really windy though, a fact that I did not realize until I turned around into the wind to come home. On the way out I thought I was superman and kept holding back so I wouldn’t die on the way back. I need to start lengthening my runs now.
